Researcher Spotlight: Jennifer Andreas
This month, we interviewed Jennifer Andreas, who has worked in biological control for the last 25 years, and provides integrated weed management strategies and education to land managers in Washington State.
Building more equitable and inclusive practice
This article reflects on how we can reframe our thinking and work to support equitable, inclusive, and just conservation science and practice.
Integrating EDRR surveillance with eDNA metabarcoding
How complete are current eDNA reference libraries for the Laurentian Great Lakes region? Can we confidently integrate invasive species detection with biodiversity sampling?
Researcher Spotlight: Dr. Steve Grodsky
This month, we interviewed Dr. Steve Grodsky at Cornell University who specializes in the emerging field of energy ecology — the study of interactions among energy development, ecosystems, and people.
Researcher Spotlight: Dr. Annette Evans
This month, we interviewed Dr. Annette Evans, a postdoctoral researcher at UMass Amherst/Northeast Climate Adaptation Science Center, whose work combines invasion ecology and climate change to inform land management by modeling abundance and distributions of invasive plants.
DOI Funding Guide for Invasive Species Management
The Department of the Interior (DOI) released a new Funding Guide for Invasive Species Management.
Researcher Spotlight: Dr. Scott McArt
NYISRI interviews Dr. Scott McArt who leads research on the ecology of plant-pollinator interactions in natural and managed systems, and helps advance our knowledge of pesticide risks to pollinators.
A Place to Pool Data on Potential Plant Invasions
Public gardens are in a unique position to form a sentinel network to aid in detecting potential invasive species. This study informs how public gardens can collectively contribute data for potential new invaders.
Researcher Spotlight: Stacy Endriss, Ph.D
NYISRI interviews Dr. Stacy Endriss, an evolutionary ecologist who explores creative approaches for improving how we assess the impacts of invasions and their management.
